Working with agencies is often an experience in balancing layers. The Colleaga project came through us via agency, however we worked with the client directly as well. Our task in this project was to help build the base platform for Colleaga to launch their project. The project was seeking a Drupal solution and custom integration with BrightIdea's Innovation Portal via API.
The platform features a social community, Bright Idea content / user integration via API as well as a responsive design. To facilitate faceted search, and the ability to search within PDFs, and documents - we implemented Apache SOLR's search APIs and built the project on Pantheon's rock solid hosting solutions. For times when site usage spikes, and the platform needs to scale, situations are handled seamlessly.
Communication with users is done via Mailchimp which makes it easy for us to integrate to the site, and to give full marketing power to the client in order to create amazing communications with their newsletter subscriber base for marketing purposes.
Shoreline is able to keep our team lean and focused so as to not over-staff projects.
Weekly SCRUM meetings were held between different teams through the development period in order to establish quick results, identify blockers and progress early on in the project.
